I set up a USB GPS dongle following these instructions from KM4ACK on the same W3DJS build you are using. This is a reiteration of what OH8STN had done previously.

I am, in the UK. I once asked a corporate lawyer was he ok with me agreeing to such things on behalf of the company.

He said yes, and let them tray and enforce it…

I wonder if we are familiar with the details of some of the EULA agreements the we click on “agree” button. 🤔. In any event I gave years of my computer resources to the SETI Project. But I suggest we pay as much attention and offer as much criticism to other EULA that we agree to. 
   And I ask, does anyone know the home address of the lawyers that write those EULAs that we all agree to? What other software have we decided not to use because we did not like the EULA terms?

Thanks for the advise. After entering the command gpsd fails to start. It generated a journal that basically states that the an exec start process belonging to unit gpsd.service has exited. Failed to start gps daemon.

Thanks again for the help.

Hi Bill,
I did see these instructions.  I just figured that before I went off and modified a bunch of config files and installed new stuff that I should see if there is an easy to do "click here" option.
Thank you.
George

Thanks Bill

I haven't worked with Ham Pi but I recommend an alternative that does just about the same thing:  KM4ACK's Build-a-Pi, now at V3.  It has an AP built into it.  It supports selectively installing and uninstalling ham radio applications.  I don't know if you want to start over, but if you do, see his stuff at https://app.simplenote.com/publish/kqPjB5 and his great YouTube videos that explain and demonstrate.  His Hotspot Tools support you running a hotspot/ AP on your Pi or connecting to a known network.  HamClock is a fun display.  I just loaded this latest version and am using PAT Winlink on it.

Thanks Mark,
I really appreciate the reply and your thoughts.  I have a tiny portable router I could use.  I was just trying to minimize the clutter and eliminate the router if possible.  I figure if the PI supports AP mode then I don't need to bring the extra little AP box.  If not that is not a big deal, just one more thing to bring.
I am testing it with an RPI 3 at the moment.  I have an RPI 4 on order.  I assume the 3 hardware supports AP mode.  If not, that may be the reason I come up in client mode.
If anyone knows the magic config parameters to change, please let me know. 
Thanks,
George

Correct,

It works now, that the initial seed is fixed (as seen later in the group thread)
Once the initial seed was fixed, people started getting the torrent
stream data, and reseeding it immediately.   There are now more than a
dozen fully populated seeders, including mine.

Re: Brand New to Raspberry Pi

Etcher is only for flashing the initial image to the SD card.
You can add packages from the menu on the desktop, or from the command line if you SSH into the Pi with sudo apt install packagename
juust need to know the package name

John,

So when I decide to add an app to my collection.  Do I add it via the etcher to the download, or onto the SD Card, or download after everything is up and running.  Dave made the point that you have to back up your user profile before you update the image after some updates or you will loose your log files etc.  Does any of these avoid that?  Or others.

Re: HamPi 1.0 Released!

It should be the World Community Grid that is installed, SETI is only one of many projects you can support with your idle cycles.
 
The article says that SETI has so much data they are suspending collection for now.  Not sure if that means they want the grid computing shut down or how to they keep processing what they have.  It would need further investigation behind the story but as noted the backend processor is not just SETI but many other projects.

Sorry for any ignorance as I have yet to unzip or install the image. I the user agreement related to you or an added component to the image as it isn't part of the Raspberry image as I recall

Dave's new HamPi collection is something that caused a major change in my approach.  I got my Tech and General Ticket on March 14 and the Shutdown started the 16th.   I spent that time figuring out my HF required equipment for my shack.  I have been planning on using an existing iMAC and a semi-retired PC for Shack Automation.   After listening to Dave's session with David Casler on his Friday YouTube;  I said OK,  I have to do this now.  So I looked around and found enough information to purchase my first Raspberry Pi 4 and a few accessories to set it up. Since then I have found a few good websites for more info that have provided lots of little answers for the RP newbee.   Yes, wireless is included, or I can plug in an ethernet cable, and other similar questions.

Today I was reading an article about setting up a portable office computer.  He is using a RP 3 model and shows the standard operating system install  includes Libre Office and other compatible office apps as included.  My question is,  Are these included on the OS image in the HamPi download that does have an OS on it?

If not how can I add them?

Thank You.
